Josephine Foster duo The Children's Hour reissued by Fire records

Josephine Foster with her husband, guitarist Victor Herrero

Josephine Foster's duo with Andy Bar, The Children's Hour, is being given the reissue treatment by Fire records. The Children's Hour only ever released one album titled SOS JFK after forming in 2000 off the back of a rock trio called Golden Egg. They were heard performing in a bar, and offered the chance to cut a record, and asked to open for Billy Corgan's ill fated supergroup Zwan before going their separate ways.

The Children's Hour's SOS JFK is released on 21 January next year, on CD, LP and as a download via Fire records.
